… yadic, but also a day pibbur won't bother you with details about his doings. But wikipedia knows about lots of things which he will bother you with:

1582 – In Stratford, the one lying on the top of the Avon, William Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway pay a Ł40 bond for their marriage licence. Didn't know she was that old.

1660 Robert Boyle, John Wilkins, Christopher Wren and other leading scientists founded a learned society now known as "the Royal Society (coat of arms pictured)". What a strange name.

1814: The Times is published on Steam.

1907: In Haverhill, Massachusetts, scrap-metal is given its first movie theater.

1909: Sergei Vasilievich makes life difficult for piano players.

1919 – Lady Astor is the first woman to sit in the House of Commons. Countess Markievicz, the first to be elected for some reason chose to stand.

1989: Cold War: Velvet Revolution – In the face of protests, the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia announces it will give up its monopoly on political power.

pibbur who observes that first automobile race in the United States took place in Chicago 117 years before pibbur came to town.
